We will be leaving on Tuesday for two weeks at Squaw Lake. With the help of snowmobiles, we will get back into camp. Hope to have some kind of news soon. There will be five of us this time, as we have added a tracker and a hound to our party. The group will be Paul from USFS, animal behavior specialist; Julie, USFS biologist; Sam Cartwright, special tracker USFS and Dale.

Is Bigfoot really responsible for the Squaw Lake damage? That was a question that was asked today to the supervisor of the Siskiyou ranger station in Powers Oregon. He said at this point we can't say what is going on with the lake. You probably know as much as I do stated Gordon Sackett. If we've got a situation that we feel is a danger to the public, then we have a duty to close the lake until a time when we deem it safe.
If we reopen the lake and someone in the public is harmed then we've got big problems. Sackett said, in a telephone conference with me, that many organizations have requested passage into the lake area. We are keeping the area closed to the public and that's it.
He said that a group based out of Eugene, Oregon has requested a permit to enter the lake area and was denied because of the dangerous conditions that currently exist. Also there are some USFS employees doing a study in the area. When asked what kind of study he replied "No commit. I'm sorry I'm not at liberty to discuss it any further."
A Bigfoot group in California has filed a formal complaint with the Department of Interior in Washington DC
A article from November 24, 1962, The Cave Daily. The strange body of animal of unknown origin was sent to San Diego, California by the United States Forest Service for identification Monday . The animal is said to be a cross between a bear or gorilla type. Loggers were clearing Dew Ridge Access Road on Greyback near O'Brien when they discovered the animal crushed under a large Douglas Fir tree that had fell in the wind storm last month.
Medical examiner officials said they never have seen such a animal before. The forensic lab in California will make a determination on what the carcass is. It is rumored the animal might be the legendary "Sasquatch" a name derived from Indian folklore meaning "Wild Man of the Woods".
Six years ago a crew on Bluff Creek in Humboldt County, California found large tracks on a logging road construction site. Bluff Creek is only forty miles from Dew Ridge.
